Creative announced the I-Trigue L3800, the new top-of-the-line 2.1 speaker system in the award-winning family of I-Trigue speakers for desktop and notebook PCs and MP3 players. Blending beautiful design with advanced audio technology, the I-Trigue L3800 is the first speaker system to include a wireless IR remote to control both the speaker system and a Creative Zen MP3 player. The I-Trigue L3800 instantly transforms a Zen Vision media player or a Zen Sleek, Zen Sleek Photo, Zen Micro or Zen MicroPhoto MP3 player into a gorgeous, wirelessly controlled high-fidelity sound system. It is available now for an estimated street price of US $149.99.

"Just plug in your Zen MP3 player to the I-Trigue L3800 speaker system and you have a great-looking, awesome sounding wireless system that's versatile enough to go with your notebook or desktop PC," said Brad Anderson, director of product marketing for Creative. "The I-Trigue line has made Creative the number-one seller of fashion speakers, and we continue to innovate with new designs and now, wireless control."

The I-Trigue L3800 is the first of Creative's popular I-Trigue speaker systems to come standard with a wireless IR remote to control both the speakers and an attached Creative Zen MP3 player, from up to 20 feet away. Users can connect a Zen Vision media player or a Zen Sleek, Zen Sleek Photo, Zen Micro or Zen MicroPhoto MP3 player to the included desktop wireless receiver and have total control over power, volume, play, pause, and track skip/reverse.

The I-Trigue L3800 represents an entirely new design, sporting a streamlined look with a brushed, real aluminum finish that beautifully complements MP3 players, flat-panel monitors, and other home electronics devices. The matching subwoofer also features a striking design, yet is compact enough to fit discreetly in the corner of any room.

The I-Trigue L3800 delivers 48 Watts RMS of power, a dramatic improvement over competing speaker systems. The I-Trigue L3800 continues the use of Creative's proprietary NeoTitanium micro driver technology, which produces the clear highs and rich audio details that are missing from competing speaker systems that use ordinary aluminum drivers. The I-Trigue L3800 also features Creative Lateral Firing Transducers (LFT)-midrange, side-firing drivers that fill the gap between the audio highs and lows for a wider soundstage and fuller, more natural sound. In addition, each satellite features two amplifiers that separately drive both the LFT and the NeoTitanium micro drivers for maximum power and performance.
